This house sold in 5 days for $52,000 over asking price
Home staging tip: If you had asked me this question a few years ago I would have answered yes. In the pre-tablet era TVs were an important aspect of everyday life, but today things have changed. Many people no longer watch TV, so it is no longer essential to indicate where a TV can be installed in a room. In the picture above, in fact, the TV was originally located in a niche above the fireplace (in the photo it is hidden by a picture), but today screens no longer have that size so it doesn’t have much sense to indicate that the TV should be placed in that space. For this reason, we decided that for this project it was better to completely bypass the problem and to focus on opening up the living room instead, by moving the sofa from the center of the room to the largest wall, which is where the TV once stood. By doing so we sacrificed that visual aid that would have helped the buyer understand where a potential TV could be installed. That said, stagers still use TV props to do a staging, but it’s not as frequent as it used to be.
